abstract

  • The beneficial effects of pacing in high-risk LQTS patients probably relate to the prevention of bradycardia, pauses, and the shortening of long QT intervals--factors that are known to be arrhythmogenic in this syndrome. Permanent cardiac pacing reduces the rate of recurrent syncopal events in high-risk LQTS patients, but it does not provide complete protection.
